Ships in 3-5 business days.

Deep ruby in color with wonderfully rich, ripe berries and summer cherry pie on the nose, complemented by hints of earth, cedar, rosemary, and dried sage. A supple, well-structured palate that's full, almost juicy, with a slightly mineral edge.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot

Wine Spectator: 94
This displays a pure core of black cherry, cassis and plum puree flavors before the back end clamps down, revealing grippy tar and apple wood notes. Shows freshness and drive, with a pervasive sagebrush detail. Give this time to round into form. Best from 2022 through 2038.
Wine Enthusiast: 90
This wine offers outstanding value, made in a soft, approachable style that still retains complexity and full-bodied flavor. Thick, chalky tannins give it a grip that melds well against lush offerings of dark chocolate and black cherry encased in toasted oak.
